It’s another milestone–it’s my birthday and I wake up today feeling blessed to be alive for another day. Also, I wanted to share with you a few things I picked up from last month’s beauty haul.
These products I picked up when I had a recent makeup application at Mecca Cosmetica – The Strand in Sydney. As part of being a level 3 beauty loop member, I was gifted the Mecca Cosmetica 365 Hydrating Hand Wash Bergamot, Orange & Gardenia. This is the first birthday gift I’ve received since joining Beauty Loop.
From the makeup application session, I asked for some samples from Darphin Lumiere Essentielle Illuminating Oil Serum and Darphin Lumiere Essentielle Illuminating Oil Gel-Cream. Both are luxury skincare products but feel ever so lovely on my skin, going to add these on my wish list!
Dr Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Moisture Cushion 15ml AU$30 – This is an oil-free moisturiser that helps to lock-in moisture and keep skin firm and look younger in complexion. I have been a fan of this brand for about 6 months now, when I first caught my eyes on the chemical exfoliant, Alpha Beta Original Daily Peel packets.
By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder 1.33g AU$15 – This is a finishing powder for flawless, shine-free and perfect hold makeup without drying out the skin. I’m curious about this brand and this product. I hope it will control my oily t-zone and keep my makeup on for longer. You don’t get much for its price, but I’m going to use it sparingly, as though it’s the only thing left on this earth!
BareMinerals Gen Nude Matt Liquid Lipcolor Boss 4ml AU$26 – This is silky-smooth formulation glides on seamlessly before drying to an on-trend natural matte finish that is free from stickiness. It is formulated with a built-in primer to minimise transfer and prevent feathering. The quality reminds me Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks, thin in consistency, but colour is opaque and long wearing without drying lips. The colour is a dirty pink beige.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss Papa Don’t Peach 4ml AU$27 – This is part of the Sweet Peach collection that has been hyped up since its launch earlier in the year. These glosses are silky smooth with an assortment of peach-inspired hues. I love the scent of these lip glosses, and the quality isn’t too bad, but in my opinion, it is overpriced and there isn’t anything special about it other than the peachy scent.
Have you tried any of these products? Which would you like me to review first?
